Fairly short and scoped, this is a glimpse into the evening show heard at WABC during the late 1960s. Bruce Morrow was very unique in his approach and one that won over the hearts of millions. Morrow is one of a kind, […]

QuickCheck: Jack Armstrong, WFUN Miami | October, 1968

Heres’s a very young Jackson Armstrong (with a slightly higher pitched voice) on WFUN, one of the early AM Top 40 stations in Miami. This has all the elements that many personality oriented stations had, reverb, PAMS jingles, and a lot of […]

Larry Tremaine, Border Blaster 1090 XERB | 1968

Steve Clark, 1400 AM/103.3 FM WKFR “Keener 14” Battle Creek, MI| July 1968

Listening to this I had to do a double take… KEENER FOURTEEN! An apparent WKNR knockoff (or perhaps it was co-owned), WKFR in Battle Creek sounds suspiciously similar to WKNR Detroit, with similar jingles, even a jock that sounds like Steve Robbins, […]

Taylor and Clark on WKNR Detroit | January 7, 1968

We suspect that Steve Taylor and Gene Clark recorded this show right off the board… in fact, they say that they will record all their shows from now on right at the start of this superb recording. Interestingly enough, they say they […]
